hi - anyone bothered getting a mossie net for babies cot when abroad? heading to the north of spain - as there two years ago and I was tormented with mossies in the middle of the night. Are these nets worthwhile or any suggestions? where do I get em?

I would say yes, but I'm not sure whether the impregnated ones would be safe for a baby or the coil burners.

I'd say yes - and also take some "Avon Woodland Fresh (used to be Skin so soft not sure what they call it now) Moisturiser - it acts as an insect repellent

I would say so. We've just got back from Greece and had a bit of a mossie problem. You can get lightweight mosquito nets from outdoor shops.

We have just got back from Majorca where I got 10 bites in 2 days! Should have bought the electric plug in zapper, they are not expensive and really work well, it was near the end of my holiday so I didn`t bother!
